Within the framework of national celebrations to mark a day set aside to honor plants and animals life (Hari Cinta Puspa and Satwa 2011) and provincial programs to create a “clean and green Bali,” around 700 residents of the traditional village of Singapadu and local school children joined forces to plant 1,000 tree on an area surrounding the Pura Dalem and Pura Bumi Desa temples in Singapadu, just north of Denpasar,
 
The planting program was held on Saturday, December 10, 2011, in areas adjoining the Bali Zoo in Singapadu.

The community-based tree-planting program was lead by the Regent of Gianyar, Dr. Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana (Cok Ace). The regent told the group: “planting trees is very useful in protecting the planet from a variety of threats. Because of this, I hope that we will all continue to protect the environment, with one of the concrete steps being the planting of trees in our living spaces.”

Cok Ace went on to explain the importance in tree plantings of selecting threatened tree species, medicinal plants and trees whose flowers and leaves are use for ceremonial purposes. By selecting plants such as these, according to the Regent, the trees will be valued and protected by the public for years to come.

Participating and supporting the tree planting exercise, the Director of the Bali Zoo, Anak Agung Gde Putra, told of the Zoo’s desire to help create a green and clean environment through the support of conservation and projects to improve the local environment.
